As a car guy with a bent for the unique, there are certain things I look for in a new whip. Quirky stuff. Things that are fairly left of center. Anyone can rock a Honda Civic. The world needs more weird!

Right Hand Drive: Check
Rear Engined: Check
Rare as all get-out: Check!
Add to that very good practicality/utility, AWD, a bunch of recent service and relatively low miles (96k) and this may be my perfect unicorn.
